Luis Valbuena hit a pair of solo home runs and lifted a sacrifice fly to help the Astros beat the Mariners on Monday.

Valbuena hit his first homer in the first inning off of Hisashi Iwakuma and his second in the eighth inning against Danny Farquhar. Valbuena, pushed out of the picture with the Cubs by the impending arrival of Kris Bryant, has been a nice find for the Astros. He has five home runs, seven RBI, and a .244/.304/.634 slash line in 46 plate appearances.

Matt Shoemaker struggled on Monday, allowing five runs in three innings as the Angels lost 6-3 to the Athletics.

Shoemaker allowed seven hits -- including home runs to Stephen Vogt and Marcus Semien -- while walking three and striking out two. The right-hander started the fourth inning but was promptly replaced after issuing a leadoff home run to Semien. Shoemaker owns a 6.46 ERA, which he'll try to lower in a weekend home start against the Rangers next.

Kendall Graveman was inefficient in a no-decision against the Angels on Monday, throwing 73 pitches while allowing three runs (two earned) in three-plus innings.

Graveman issued back-to-back walks to start the fourth inning before he was replaced by Dan Otero. The right-hander allowed four hits in total along with three walks and two strikeouts. Despite a strong spring showing, Graveman has not looked good in two of his three starts thus far. He'll try to improve on his 6.94 ERA in his next start against the Astros at home.

Marcus Semien went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Monday in a win over the Angels.

Semien went yard off of Matt Shoemaker in the fourth inning to boost the Athletics' lead to 5-3. The shortstop had been in a bit of a funk, going just 2-for-17 in his previous five games entering Monday.
Apr 21 - 1:12 AM

Tyler Clippard got his first save of the season, but had to escape some ninth-inning trouble to help the Athletics top the Angels on Monday.

Protecting a three-run lead, Clippard issued a leadoff walk to Erick Aybar, then walked Johnny Giavotella with two outs. He was able to get Kole Calhoun to line out to left field to end the game. It's only the second save of the year for the Athletics as they have massively outscored their opponents in their seven wins. Clippard will continue to get the ball in save opportunities when they present themselves.
Apr 21 - 1:10 AM

Stephen Vogt walked and slugged a three-run home run in four at-bats as the Athletics won against the Angels on Monday.

Vogt put the A's back on top 4-2 with his three-run home run off of Matt Shoemaker in the third inning. The catcher has been terrific to start the year, hitting .366/.435/.780 with four home runs and 12 RBI to begin the season.
Apr 21 - 1:06 AM

Corey Dickerson had to leave Monday's game versus the Padres due to what Rockies manager Walt Weiss referred to as "mild" plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

That Weiss is calling the ailment mild suggests that they'll try to avoid putting Dickerson on the disabled list for the time being. It's definitely and injury that can be nagging, though, so fantasy owners should have a contingency plan in place. Dickerson is batting .286/.314/.510 with two homers and 10 RBI this season. Drew Stubbs would stand to gain the extra playing time while Dickerson is out.
Apr 21 - 12:45 AM

Yonder Alonso plated three runs in a 2-for-4 effort as the Padres ran roughshod over the Rockies 14-3 on Monday.

Alonso singled in two runs in the first inning and added a sacrifice fly in the second. The first baseman entered the season as one of the weaker-hitting players at his position but has been on fire in his first 52 plate appearances, carrying a .364/.453/.477 triple-slash line with one home run and seven RBI.
